Scott Glenn is a wise man, or at least he’ll play one in Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch. According to Empire Online, Glenn has joined the all-girl cast of the film that includes Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone and Jamie Chung. Glenn will serve as a mentor/guide to the Sucker Punch bunch. He’ll be what Professor Utonium was to the Powerpuff Girls.
The film will revolve around Browning as the lead heroine Babydoll, who tries to escape a mental asylum after she discovers that her step-father plans on having her lobotomized in five days. Jon Hamm has also been cast in the film, but it has not been confirmed whether or not he’ll be taking on the evil role.
With so many girls and so little men, I can’t help but think of other female-dominated films like Charlie’s Angels and Little Women. They all featured amazing male characters, so Glenn and Hamm will be in safe hands. Scott has plenty of roles on his resume to support his “wiseman” act, such as his take on Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs. Aside from Snyder’s huge cast, the plot sounds pretty good — asylums, nicknames, action? Where do I sign up?
The action-packed film hits theaters March 15, 2011.
